Gex-X 10 Setup
I'll try to get all of my setup on here, if I miss anything let me know.
middle track width hole
standard upper arm
2 deg camber
10 deg blocks
blue spring (same as side spring)
king pin length - .580 from bottom of steering block to e-clip groove
10,000 silicone on kingpins
used the middle hole on the graphite steering arms for the tie rod
kimbrough mid size servo saver (not sure if it makes a difference or not)
CRC front end stiffener plate (p/n 1785)
shock - 35 wt oil and 30 lb spring
shock in kit location (second hole from bottom)
battery all the way forward
tubes - 10,000 wt (blue cap)
red side springs - about 1 turn preload
wide body mount plates (p/n 1771)
2 .020 shims under the front of the side links (you have to re-set the football to do this) for a little rear steer.
Ride Height 4.25mm all the way around
2.08 front and rear
front glued all the way to the edge - 7/8 traction compound
rear "safety" glue (just the seam between plastic and foam) - full traction compound
You can run less front traction and less glue, but I found a little more corner speed doing it this way. At club race grip levels I ran less traction and less glue. Dont try to run that much traction unless you have the front glued all the way up, I tried, it wasn't pretty.
Very little dual rate, used more than 3/4 or the lane to do a u-turn
Protoforn Sophia body
I ran a JR 3550 servo and it seems plenty strong enough for these bigger cars.
The car was easy and fun to drive. Again, if I forgot any aspect of the setup, let me know and I'll get it on here.
